Hiking to the "Real" Northernmost Point. Performing Identiy on the way to Knivskjellodden
Summary: Over the last decade hiking tourism has grown in Norway. This is exemplified by the increasing numbers of tourists that visits Trolltunga, Prekestolen and Kjerag. These are the most prominent examples, which appears to be part of a larger trend. Knivskjellodden has likewise, seen a rise in visitor numbers over the last decade. This aim of this thesis is to build an understanding of the meaning people attach to their hike to Knivskjellodden. This phenomenon will be explored through Edensor´s (2000, 2001, 2007) theories on performance in tourism. During the analysis it is reflected upon how identity is constructed through performances where `self´ is attached to activity, places and a certain way of traveling.
